Abuja get ready!!! This December the FCT will be thrilled with one of the most creative, and without a doubt the coolest, theatre performances of the year, in Nigeria. Following a mesmerizing premiere performance in Jos, Plateau state, A.R.T will be bringing the double award winning play to the stage in the nation’s capital.
The official poster for Abuja’s performance is a brand new, and absolutely smashing, poster art.
Venue: French Institut, Wuse 2 (Beside Mr. Biggs)
Date: 5th & 6th December
